Orange Yogurt Creamsicles

Serves 8

¾ cup frozen orange juice concentrate
½ cup granulated sugar, divided
1½ cups plain whole-milk yogurt
½ cup heavy cream
1 tsp. vanilla extract
8 wooden Popsicle sticks

1. Stir together orange juice concentrate and ¼ cup of the sugar in a small bowl.

2. Stir together yogurt, cream, vanilla and remaining ¼ cup sugar in a medium bowl.

3. Divide orange juice mixture evenly among 8 (3-oz.) ice-pop molds. Top evenly with yogurt mixture. To create the swirls, place a skewer or chopstick into the mold and move it up and down a few times. Insert a wooden stick in each mold, and freeze until mixture hardens, about 8 hours.
